Its use does not require the presence of gravity. The device can be used while lying down, sitting, and being in motion.

Hygienically clean

Just boil in a pot, drain the water and allow to dry well.

Sound provides feedback

Acoustic feedback on the vibrations. If the sound is consistant, the RC-FIT® CLASSIC is being correctly used. The required flow and pressure fluctuations are being achieved.

Oscillations / vibrations

With vibration training, the muscles contract automatically via a reflex. Training with the RC-FIT® CLASSIC is thus found to be less strenuous (than without vibrations).
